The memory of Beslan School massacre is still fresh in the minds of many Russians and the Moscow theater hostage crisis back in 2002 led to the death of many civilians.
In this latest attack it is not clear how many people and security personal have died but the fragile peace which this region enjoys lies shattered again with this new attack.
This attack will not come as a surprise to many since many Chechen fighters are right now fighting alongside ISIS in Iraq and Syria and the threat looms large if they return after their considerable combat experience.
